Neighbor Crystal Galbraith, 20, said she woke up after hearing an explosion. She looked out the window and said the whole house was on fire. “There was no saving them,” she said. “Those babies didn’t have a chance for a life.” JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Fire spread through a mobile home early Friday, killing four young siblings and their grandparents just hours after the family returned from a trip to Louisiana. A family spokesman identified the victims as 6-year-old twins Jennifer and Jessica Church, their brothers Jarod, 7, and James Jr., 12, and their grandparents Franklin Church, 61, and Brenda Church, 57. The children lived with their grandparents, two doors from their father’s home, said family spokesman Tom Marcum, a minister at Mandarin Church of Christ. The children’s mother lived in Louisiana. Neighbors said the family had returned home around 1 a.m., two hours before firefighters arrived to find the home engulfed in flames. A burned van was parked in the driveway with a trailer attached to it. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Online Thermal Images Show Ceiling Heat Leaks

first_imgResearchers overcome a variety of technical challengesGathering the raw data is more challenging than sticking a thermal imaging camera out the window of a plane and snapping a few frames.Hay said by telephone the $650,000 high-resolution camera used to acquire the thermal data could detect differences in rooftop temperatures of as little as 5/100 of a degree Celsius. After the camera was calibrated, data was collected over the city of Calgary over a two-day period in May 2012 by an airplane that flew at 120 knots in a series of overlapping flight lines.Hay and his fellow researchers had to develop several technologies to weed out potential problems and make the data useful. Wind, for example, can change temperatures and throw off results, so the team had to develop algorithms that would compensate for it. They needed software that would accurately stitch together overlapping images without chopping houses in half. The camera had to be mounted on a stable platform and linked accurately with GPS equipment in order to pinpoint houses on Google maps.“The data set itself is about 660 gigabytes,” he said. “Processing that so you can see it on your web browser has been formidable. There have been a lot of challenges.”What’s currently on the web site is phase two of the project. Phase one involved only 368 houses near the university, and making the leap to thousands of homes was an enormous undertaking, he said, involving 6,000 lines of computer code on the main web page alone.Researchers have all the data they need to complete useful thermal images of the entire city, Hay said, but what they don’t have is the roughly $500,000 it would take to process the information and make it accessible on the web site. Funding to date has come from several sources, including the Institute for Sustainable Energy, Environment and Economy, and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.Hay would like to see the city of Calgary or the Province of Alberta pick up the rest. Keeping free access to the site, he said, is key.“It’s a free project,” he said. “We want to make the data sets available. We’re not commercializing anything, at the moment anyway — certainly not. It’s free for all the citizens. It would be great if the city were able to provide it.” Helping people visualize what energy waste meansHay got interested in the project because of shortcomings at his own house, which he described as a relatively new home in a neighborhood of houses costing between $450,000 and $650,000. In other words, not a low-rent district. The house has triple-pane windows, a high-efficiency heating system, and R-50+ insulation in the roof, but Hay came home one day and realized the house was cold.“I thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if you could pull out your iPhone or your web device, click on Google maps, and up would come an image showing the energy leaving your home?’ ” he said. “And it would be color-coded from blue to red, and there would be hot spots showing you the hottest locations, and there would be some intelligence on it showing you whether it was linked to doors or windows.”In addition to what’s already on the site, a tantalizing possibility is to add links to skilled builders or renovators, and possibly specific building products, that homeowners could use to fix the problems.Energy savings and reductions in greenhouse gas emissions could be significant, Hay said, if enough people could be motivated to act.“Everyone just needs to do a couple of little things,” he said. “But the biggest problem is very simple. The number-one reason for not being engaged in energy efficiency is simply, people don’t care. Why? Because they can’t see it. How can you be engaged in something you really can’t see? It’s invisible.“So we show the invisible heat. We show it. We make it visible. We tell you how much energy is leaving. We show you where it’s located. And our objective next is to link you with the right individuals, the right companies, to show you what to do about it.”There’s been a lot of interest in the project since the site went live in August, with more than 35,000 site visits from people in 86 different countries, Hay said. A University of Calgary team has combined thermal imaging and Google maps to show thousands of city residents where their houses are leaking energy and how much money they could save by tightening them up.The project, called Heat Energy Assessment Technologies or HEAT, gives residents of some neighborhoods in Calgary, Alberta, access to a free web site where they can pinpoint their home on a familiar Google map. Once the house is highlighted, they get a “HEAT score” showing how much energy is being wasted when compared with other houses in the city, a thermal image that shows hot spots, and projected savings in both dollars and greenhouse gases that would be possible by reducing average roof temperatures.Researchers used a sophisticated thermal imaging camera mounted on an airplane to gather data and process the results for roughly 38,000 homes, a little more than 10% of the city’s total.According to a news report on CBC News, the leader of the project is geography associate professor Geoffrey Hay, who started by testing his own house.“I’m learning from the technology what’s actually wrong with my home,” he told the station. “I was able to put some insulation around my door, and significantly reduce the amount of energy coming out.”last_img read more

London Olympics: Missy Franklin backstrokes to 100m gold in swimming

first_imgAmerican swimmer Missy Franklin won gold in a tight 100m backstroke final at the London Olympics on Monday. Franklin, 17, edged out Emily Seebohm to win in 58.37 seconds, with the Australian claiming silver clocking 58.65.”It is exceeding the expectations one hundred billion times over!

Kohli, De Villiers magic hands Bangalore 13-run win over Pune

first_imgStar batsmen A.B. de Villiers and Virat Kohli smashed quick-fire half-centuries followed by a disciplined bowling effort which guided Royal Challengers Bangalore to a comfortable 13-run victory over Rising Pune Supergiants in an Indian Premier League (IPL) contest in Pune on Friday. (This is how Kohli, De Villiers handed RCB a thumping win over Pune)De Villiers (83 off 46 balls) and Virat Kohli (80 off 63 balls) helped Bangalore post a competitive total of 185/3 in 20 overs. In reply, despite opener Ajinkya Rahane’s 60, the hosts lost wickets at regular intervals and could manage only 172/8 in 20 overs. (Photo Gallery)Kane Richardson (3-13) and Shane Watson (2-31) were the pick of the bowlers for Bangalore, while Harshal Patel and Tabraiz Shamsi claimed one wicket each.Chasing a challenging target of 186, Pune got off to a disappointing start, losing opener Faf du Plessis (2) and Kevin Pietersen (0 retired hurt) inside two overs.The hosts received yet another blow as the side lost Steve Smith (4), after Virat Kohli ran him out to put Pune in a spot of bother at 18/2 in 2.3 overs.But opener Rahane along with new batsman and skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (41) used their experience to best effect to hold on to the wicket and sneaking in with runs to help team post 36/2 after completion of powerplay.Rahane showed his class yet again with the bat to bring up his half-century in just 37 balls and help team stay in hunt for the run chase.Dhoni-Rahane combined to post 73/2 in 10 overs.Dhoni was aiming to take on the bowlers, but got out in the 16th over to have the team in trouble.advertisementThisara Perera hit Patel for 25 runs in the 18th over to put Pune back into the run chase. But the 19th over saw Watson dismissing Perera to have match turned on in favour of the visitors.Earlier put into bat, Bangalore got off a slow start, losing opener K.L. Rahul (7) in the fourth over to put a breaks on the scoring.But his opening partner Kohli and de Villiers kept the scoreboard ticking, sneaking in with ones, twos to take the score to 48/1 after completion of the powerplay.But soon after the powerplay, the in-form duo unleashed their pyrotechnics to smash boundaries and sixes at regular intervals without losing any wickets to take team to 97/1 in 11 overs that set up the stage for yet another big score.Kohli and de Villiers made it look simple as the Indian and South African pair brought up their 100-run partnership for the second wicket in just 69 balls and helped their team reach 128/1 in 15 overs.The duo put on 155-run partnership for the second wicket to take team to a competitive total, before Kohli and De Villiers were dismissed in successive balls in 20th over.Perera (3-34) was the pick of the bowlers for Pune.Brief Scores: Royal Challengers Bangalore: 185/3 in 20 overs (AB de Villiers 83, Virat Kohli 80; Thisara Perera 3-34) vs Rising Pune Supergiants 172/8 in 20 overs (Ajinkya Rahane 60; Kane Richardson 3-13, Shane Watson 2-31)last_img read more

Specifically, we’ve been looking for pitchers that replicate some of the success of Hall of Famer Goose Gossage, for whom the goose egg is named. The “firemen” of Gossage’s day didn’t care as much about recording saves. Instead, they pitched in as many high-leverage situations as they could get their hands on: for instance, in tied games, or in the seventh or eighth innings when the situation demanded it. Pitchers like these provided a lot more value to their teams than modern closers who are often used exclusively in save situations. (The goose egg credits pitchers for clutch, scoreless relief innings, whether or not they’re save situations.)From the standpoint of overall bullpen usage patterns, there have been signs of progress around baseball. Major-league teams are placing less emphasis on the save and instead using their best relief pitchers in smarter ways.But no individual pitchers have come close to replicating the workload and value of Gossage, who accumulated a record 82 goose eggs — in 141.2 innings pitched — in 1975. In fact, no pitcher has yet earned even 40 goose eggs so far this season.The major-league leaders are the Dodgers’ Kenley Jansen and the Brewers’ Corey Knebel, who each had 38 goose eggs through Thursday night. Seattle’s Edwin Diaz leads the American League with 33 goose eggs, having helped lead the Mariners to a 25-13 record in one-run games.Knebel has had an outstanding season by any measure, but it’s been a fairly conventional one. The Brewers have dabbled with using him in Gossage-like situations — he’s made seven multi-inning appearances, for instance — but haven’t done so all that consistently.The Dodgers have gone a little further down the goose-feathered road with Jansen, who has 12 multi-inning appearances. The team has also avoided using Jansen with leads of three runs or more, which are usually a waste of an elite reliever’s talents. (A three-run lead is a save situation but not a goose situation.) And Jansen has been remarkably efficient, having converted all 38 of his goose opportunities. Still, Jansen is on pace for only 70 innings — typical for a modern closer, but only about half as many as Gossage threw at his peak.And some pitchers who were handling heavier workloads earlier in the season have seen their teams let up on the gas pedal — or have gotten themselves hurt. An early goose-egg favorite, the Astros’ Chris Devenski, has settled into a more conventional usage pattern as the season has worn on instead of routinely pitching two or more innings at a time. The Indians’ Andrew Miller has been on the DL twice in the past month.So the opportunity to see a truly Gossage-like season won’t happen for at least one more year. In the meantime, you can find complete goose stats for all pitchers this year in the table below.

Health Ministry warns of Pink Eye outbreak in TCI

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, June 9th 2017: An increase in cases of Pink Eye has raised alarm with the Health Ministry in the TCI, prompting it to advise caution to all residents.Conjunctivitis also called, “pink eye”, is an inflammation of the conjunctiva caused by virus, bacteria or allergy. The ministry says symptoms can follow a virus that also causes the common cold, and as a result deems it as highly contagious.Symptoms include, eyes turning pink or red, weeping or oozing a gooey liquid, experience itching and burning, and eyes stuck shut when you first wake up. The advisory says these symptoms can last for several days.However, the ministry says treatment can differ, depending on the cause of contraction. It warns that antibiotics will not help. While you can use warm or cool compresses, to relieve the pain and irritation in the eyes, the ministry says most cases of pink eye go away on its own without treatment, but it is best to see a primary care physician if symptoms are being experienced, to ensure it is treated properly.Meanwhile the ministry has issued some hygienic guidelines to minimize transmission, advising persons with the virus to avoid sharing bed sheets and pillows, towels, tissues and handkerchiefs including cosmetics with unaffected family and friends.It also asks persons to practice hand washing with water and plain soap, and rubbed together for 15 to 30 seconds, while children should be made to wash their hands before and after eating and after touching the eyes, coughing, or sneezing.The ministry says alcohol-based hand rubs or hand sanitizers are a good alternative for disinfecting hands if a sink is not available.

first_img SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Strong and gusty Santa Ana winds, low humidity and warm temperatures prompted the National Weather Service to issue a red flag fire warning Friday denoting a strong risk of wildfire in San Diego County.Along with low humidity levels, the strong Santa Ana winds blowing northeast are to blame for the fire danger, with winds of 15 to 25 mph in the forecast and gusts near 45 mph possible in the county mountains, according to the Santa Ana Wildfire Threat Index. Humidity was expected to drop to 15-20 percent Friday.The red flag warning went into effect at 3 Friday morning and will last until 10 p.m. Friday evening for the county mountains and valleys.Vegetation will be dry enough to result in rapid spread of flames should ignition occur, according to the wildfire threat index.San Diego County residents were urged to avoid outdoor burning during the warning.Warm seasonal temperatures were also expected to add to the potential fire danger. High temperatures Friday will be 85 to 87 degrees near the coast and inland, 86 to 91 degrees in the western valleys, 79 to 84 in the foothills, 69 to 76 in the mountains and around 87 in the deserts, NWS forecasters said.According to Cal Fire San Diego Unit Chief Tony Mecham, residents should take measures to safeguard themselves and their homes, including clearing flammable vegetation to create roughly 100 feet of “defensible space” around residences; developing an emergency evacuation plan; and planning in advance which important documents, heirlooms, photos and medications to quickly gather prior to any evacuation.County officials also recommend that residents register their mobile phones on the county’s emergency-alert system, AlertSanDiego, and download the free SD Emergency App. Residents can learn more about fire safety and preparedness online at ReadySanDiego.org.“The humidity will recover tonight and not be as low on Saturday with gusty winds diminishing Saturday afternoon,” NWS forecasters said.
